2015 Foodies of the Year: Aman Dosanj

This self-taught chef is bringing a taste of India to the Okanagan.

What’s a young English footballer to do after playing goalkeeper for England U-16 and then signing with Arsenal Ladies? Aman Dosanj and family crossed the pond to open a dynamic, contemporary Indian restaurant (poppadoms.ca) that has found a surprising synergy with Okanagan terroir—both in its innovative wines and its ingredients. Dosanj, a self-taught chef, is gaining mad respect for her tireless work ethic and endless curiosity—her days off are spent with Kelowna’s charcuterie kingpins and chef-mentors around the valley, endlessly collaborating and experimenting with likeminded foodies.
